THE BOSS IS BACK
Just when you thought it was safe.
 
 
We already shared the two-piece panel length poster for Sukeban berûsu: mesubachi no chosen, aka Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee’s Challenge, but today we have two alternate versions. At top you see the standard poster, and below is the bo-ekibari, or horizontal two-piece. We already told you everything you need to know about the movie—in short, it has Reiko Ike, Miki Sugimoto, and strategic soap foam. A perfect night’s entertainment.

FOAM ALONE
Reiko Ike again demonstrates the utility of soap foam for covering her naughty bits.

Remember a while back when we watched Sukeban berûsu: mesubachi no chosen, aka Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee’s Challenge, and got such a kick out of Reiko Ike's brief bathtub scene? We stumbled across this promo shot from the film, and once again she shows a deft hand for manipulating foam. The photo shows less than the film—in that she didn’t cover her top half, but in any case, this is a fun shot. Check out our previous post on the movie here.

BEE BOPPED
These Yakuza never learn.

Above is a nice panel length poster for 1972’s Sukeban berûsu: mesubachi no chosen, aka Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee’s Challenge, the second entry in the Girl Boss series made by Toei Studios in the early 1970s. This one stars Reiko Ike (before the tattoo), along with Chiyoko Kazama, and Miki Sugimoto in an appearance just lengthy enough for her to get a couple of bottles of cola sprayed up her ya-ya. If you can wrest your eyes from the constantly recurring tableaux of perfect skin, there is a plot, and it involves a pair of girl gangsters/bitter rivals captured by a yakuza boss and subjected to various sadistic tortures (including that old Japanese favorite—rope bondage, aka kinbaku-bi). Of course, the abuse in these films is inevitably followed by much deserved revenge against the evil males, up close and bloody. But it isn’t all violence and vengeance. There are some effective moments of comedy, and of course, the film is beautifully shot. All-in-all, Sukeban berûsu: mesubachi no chosen is a must-see for pinku fans. You’ll learn exactly how effective a handful of soap foam can be for covering a woman’s bush.
